Lagos metro finally carrying passengers
Posted on 5th September 2023 at 09:12
The elevated Blue Line metro started passenger service on 4 September despite being officially inaugurated as long ago as 24 January 2023.
At that time some trial journeys were carried out using a diesel locomotive to push-pull a metro set. The line links Marina and Mile 2 (13km with five stations) and is standard gauge with 15 Chinese-built four-car trains from CNR Dalian ordered as long ago as 2015.
They operate at 750V dc from a third rail.
